Al is still feeling pretty miserable from his sinus infection and the antibiotics make him sensitive to the sun and heat. So…..he’s not much fun!
We stayed home and “doctored” him yesterday. Lots of TLC and an afternoon nap seemed to help.
I made some ribs, fresh asparagus, and au gratin potatoes for dinner. We buy the asparagus from Sam’s club and they seem to have the best asparagus. I drizzled on some olive oil, added some salt, pepper and a little garlic, and then cooked it for 5 minutes in our Nu-Wave oven. I think it was the best asparagus I ever had. Al normally isn’t a big fan, so I made him some broccoli. He kept helping himself to more of “my” asparagus. It’s a good thing I made a lot!
My good friend Carol, from junior high days called yesterday to tell me that she and her husband bought their first Rv. They bought an 18 foot toy hauler trailer. They have a Harley motorcycle (trike), and decided to give rv’ing a try. We’re hoping to be able to meet them somewhere between here and Arkansas (where they live) and
“go camping,” later in the fall. I think I am more excited than she is!
Carol is a nurse and she mentioned the girl who had a zip-lining accident, and is now in danger of losing all of her limbs. Carol reminded us to be very careful when we’re in the woods, lakes, rivers to watch even small cuts very carefully.
This young 24 year old woman was zip-lining in Georgia when the line broke. She fell and got a bad cut on her leg which required a trip to the Er and 24 staples.
A few days later she was back in the hospital on life support. Her left leg was amputated to the hip. The latest news is that the tissue on her hands and other foot have died and will likely have to be amputated as well.
Here is a link to the Facebook page her father put up. It gives updates on her condition. I’m sure any and all prayers would be appreciated.
Anyway, it’s a good reminder to take those little cuts and scraps seriously when we’re out traipsing through the woods and rivers.
